Lithium for Medea is as much a tale of addiction–to sex, drugs, and dysfunctional family chains–as it is one of mothers and daughters, their mutual rebellion and unconscious mimicry. Here is the story according to Rose–the daughter of a narcissistic, emotionally crippled mother and a father who shadowboxes with death in hospital corridors–as she slips deeply and dangerously into the lair of a cocaine-fed artist in the bohemian squalor of Venice. Lithium for Medea sears us with Rose’s breathless, fierce, visceral flight–like a drug that leaves one’s perceptions forever altered.
“[Lithium for Medea] has the power and intensity you don’t see much outside of rock and roll.” — Rolling Stone
